HBO's True Detective

Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn Join True Detective Season 2

Following rumors of these most recent castings, HBO has officially confirmed that both actors will be joining the cast of its critically successful Crime Drama, True Detective.

IGN has an official description of Farrell’s and Vaughn’s characters in the new season:

“As previously reported, Season 2 follows three police officers and a career criminal as they navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. In this, Farrell will play Ray Velcoro, “a compromised detective whose allegiances are torn between his masters in a corrupt police department and the mobster who owns him.” Vaughn will play Frank Semyon, “a career criminal in danger of losing his empire when his move into legitimate enterprise is upended by the murder of a business partner.””

Also, apparently in the same announcement, Fast and Furious Director Justin Lin will direct the first two episodes of the new season. Filming will commence in California later this fall.
